THE BRONX - Representatives from the Department of Housing Preservation and Development say they?re taking their message ?to the streets? as part of a campaign to spread information on home ownership and tenant rights.

Officials say the Home First program is specifically targeting neighborhoods with high immigrant populations and distributing pamphlets in a number of languages. Representatives will continue the initiative through the end of the July.

The agency says it hopes to enlighten residents on a number of housing issues including low interest loans and affordable housing.

Bronx residents can call 3-1-1 for more information.
